Tokyo (Airport Code: NRT) is the capital of Japan and the world’s most populous metropolis recognized for its technology and innovation while anchoring itself in timeless tradition. NRT seeks to transport you to Tokyo - a city that is futuristic yet traditional, electric, eccentric, unique and absolutely unforgettable.
Top notes of ripe, black fig evoke memories of a luxurious evening spent on the top floor of a dimly lit hotel lounge offering panoramic views of Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Tower that glows softly at twilight. A heart of hinoki, which can be found throughout Tokyo and surrounding prefectures, pays homage to tradition by connecting Tokyo with Kyoto (Airport Code: KIX) that served as the capital of Japan for over a thousand years and remains the epicenter of traditional Japanese culture.
A woody base of cedarwood celebrates the cedar trees that one can find during an afternoon stroll through Yoyogi Park, perfectly situated in Shibuya near the affluent zelkova tree-lined avenue of Omotesando. Notes of guaiacwood and light musk are reminiscent of intoxicating yet subtle smoky incense that fills the air around temples hidden throughout the city. Rich amber balances the earthy cedarwood and beautifully blends the sweet, ripe black fig with the sharp cypress to create an accord that is as complex, bold and mysterious as Tokyo. For an immersive experience, pair your candle with an aged bottle of Japanese whiskey and a selection of A5 wagyu. Kanpai! 乾杯
